A StarfishStories project in support of the "Let The Dolphins Go" ACRES's campaign, to free the dolphins at Resorts World Sentosa. See http://www.saddestdolphins.com.
Initial musical draft ["Free (raw version) 010611"] composed and created by Adrian Loo. Lyrics by I-Ling Chia. Final mix, plus additional guitars, by Ivan Chew. Feel free to copy/ share/ remix/ sell the tracks under the stated CC license. Please credit: "Starfish Stories :: The Band - StarfishStories.wordpress.com"
Adrian composed the raw draft for the dolphin campaign. Titled it "Free". He wrote, "Imagine dolphins porpoising in the water". Then I-Ling came up with the words: ============================== Free
Leap and turn in the air Like a child at play Whistle songs, sing your dreams In the summer rays Feel the rush of the currents Find your way in the ocean
Glide along, ride the crest Thereâs no turning back Hold your breath and break the waves Full speed ahead Feel the rush of the currents Youâre a child of the ocean
Youâre free. So free, oh, so free. Breathe. Youâre free, so free. ==============================
Capturing intelligent creatures, who were roaming free, for the sake of entertainment. And calling the move as part of contribution to research. Doesn't make a lot of sense.
Please, let the dolphins go.
